Charleston Motherhood, Newborn,
& family Photographer

Capturing life's most fleeting moments! 

I’m Laura, Charleston, SC motherhood, newborn, and family photographer. I am a sucker for the in-between moments; the moments that capture who you truly are as a mother, father, child, and family. I'm excited to do life with you - whether that be documenting your days or sharing in a good laugh about the latest and craziest thing our little ones have done!

Most days you’ll find me with a messy bun on top of my head, chasing around my one year old, plotting my next trip to Chick-Fil-A to get a gallon of sweet tea – or trying to figure out the next chapter in our lives. I’m a planner to my core but the irony of that is, I married an Air Force Pilot and our life is anything but predictable. My husband and I met in college and just a few weeks before we graduated we re-planned our entire wedding in ten days. It's been one crazy adventure after the next since then, with our greatest adventure beginning in

2016 when we welcomed our sweet little boy, Caden Hayes, into our family. I dreamt of that moment for years, but nothing could have prepared me for what it would be like to hold my baby for the first time. It’s true what they say, time goes way too quickly. Before you know it, that tiny little baby you were dreaming about is ten years old, running around and you are trying to figure out how to keep up. Wherever you are and whatever season of life you are journeying through, I cannot wait to get to know you and your family! 

Everything has changed and yet, I am more me than I've ever been.

I was 8 years old when I took my first solo flight & that was just the beginning. From the East Coast to the West and abroad, I have a need to experience it all - the culture, the food, & the people. And since my little guy's favorite thing to do is "go-go", I can imagine there is more travel in our future!

There's something about lacing up a pair of shoes and hitting the pavement for a run that makes my heart sing. It's my sanctuary - where pain meets freedom and where I often find inspiration. I love that I get to share my passion for running with my son now & see his excitement for it too.

to have something of my own; to be my best



Yep, I keep a journal! Something about writing inspires me and I've also found it to be quite therapeutic over the years. You can expect to see more of it here in the coming months as well - mostly bits and pieces of what life is like as a Mama to a busy toddler! 

it's what inspires me! 



I still remember the day we got each of them. Bristol was our first "baby" and Trooper was our rescue pup - we just couldn't say no to him!

our STORY:


I chose to become a motherhood + newborn photographer

In 2014, we miscarried our first baby. I was lost, so angry, full of grief, and I knew I had to do something or it was going to destroy me. I needed to do something good – I needed to celebrate life. And since that day, I've been doing just that. I get to photograph and walk through life with the most genuine Mama's, most adoring Dads, and sweetest little ones.
